Biography

Boston's Pretty & Nice got their start several hours northwest in Burlington, Vermont, where musician Holden Lewis met engineer/musician Jeremy Mendicino in 2004 and the two proceeded to record what would become the band's debut, Pink & Blue. After releasing the record (and embarking on a year's worth of gigs), the duo settled in Boston and recruited Bobby Landry as a full-time drummer. In an unconventional move, the group followed up its debut with an EP of remixes, entitled Blue & Blue, and soon caught the attention of Sub Pop subsidiary Hardly Art. With label backing and a touring lineup in place (Andy Contois was brought in for bass duty), the group went to work on its next full-length, Get Young, released in 2008. With the teaser Tora Tora Tora 7" in hand, Pretty & Nice embarked on a national tour that found them in the throng of the SXSW festival that same year. Drummer Bobby Landry left to pursue other projects, and the band went on a recording hiatus for the next five years. Bassist/multi-instrumentalist Roger Lussier joined the group for its 2013 follow-up, Golden Rules for Golden People, which was recorded in California before the band returned to its hometown of Boston. ~ J.
